For Immediate Release

Supreme Court Upholds Trump’s Muslim Ban

Washington D.C. — By a narrow 5-4 margin, the Supreme Court today announced its decision to uphold President Trump’s Muslim ban.
 
This decision represents a huge step backwards for our country. It undermines decades worth of progress when it comes to equality, human rights, and inclusivity, and it leaves us without the moral authority to lecture despots and dictators about their flagrant disregard for human rights.

Moreover, today’s decision does not make us safer. To the contrary, today’s decision hands our enemies a significant victory. It means we will continue to expend precious resources and political capital on the wrong threat. And it means we will continue to alienate the world’s Muslims, which plays right into the hands of the terrorists who seek to divide us.

We would encourage anyone who is troubled by today’s ruling to make their voices heard. Rallies are being held across the country today. More information on where to find a rally in your area can be found on our website. More importantly, citizens can make their voices heard at the ballot box. Americans should throw their support behind candidates who understand that the best way to defend US national security interests is by embracing, not rejecting, American values of openness and inclusivity.
